A1c 5.8 fbg 120

My husband got his blood results back, Dr says everything is fine,but I am a bit concerned at the 120, The lab had it down as a random blood test but he had been fasting for the cholesterol one. I guess I will have to try & help him loose weight. Of course if I tell him I think he has Pre D he will ignore me & repeat Dr said everything is wonderful.

His HbA1c is still good. I have good fastings under 100 but my HbA1 c is 6.8. I am sure if your husband tweaked his diet a little and upped his exercise he could drop into the normal range.

My fasting bg often is that elevated and sometimes more when I go to get labs. It seems my liver is very good at boosting my bg when I fast. I think mine was 130 last week when I got my labs done but came right back down under 100 after breakfast and taking my meds. I am used to bg being over 100 every morning but I usually have a A1c under 6. My A1c was 5.9 from last weeks labs.

Thank you both. Clint, that is a good point, he normally makes breakfast as soon as he gets up ( bacon & egg or sausage & egg with mushrooms or peppers ) fairly low carb, but the day of the blood test he did not eat before he left home & had to wait  almost an hour for the lab to open up before the blood draw, so I can see the liver kicking in.

Jeane, thanks, I am hoping once the rain stops we can get out & do more walking. I know I can put on rain jacket & walk, but it isn't much fun.

You could do some kind of oral glucose tolerance on him at home to get an idea of his situation. Include a few more tests and you will see just how insulin resistant he is.
